|Five minutes into the park and Cali Swimmy is already|
making friends with the locals.
|Walt and Mickey, with the castle behind them.|
|All of the visits I've made, and I've never noticed the squirrel|
|When I was three or four, apparently we left the park with|
me whining the whole way, "We didn't ride Dumbo!!!"
|So I got in line, and told a cast member just why an adult was|
in line, sans children. He laughed, as did the man in front of
me with his own children...who had a similar story about another
ride and his own childhood. : )
|So I rode Dumbo, and sent this to Mom and Dad.|
|My next stop was Toon Town, which I missed last year.|
|Donald Duck has a house boat there.|
|Cali Swimmy was happy to visit the S.S. Daisy, but he was|
impatient to meet his idol again.
|If you look, you find so many funny little jokes all over|
Disneyland. "Coloratura par eggcellance."
|I rode King Arthur's Carousel. I love carousels.|
|I don't recall ever seeing any of the villains out at the park.|
She was so good, very snotty.
|A long-time favorite.|
|OF COURSE I bought it. Apparently it's been around a while|
but I didn't see it last year.
|Pretty drinking fountain.|
|The Dapper Dans--excellent barbershop singing, and also|
|As we were leaving for the afternoon to go sing, Cali and I|
ran into Donald, who was very happy to say hello to a fellow
|Ready to sing! This was in the warm-up room as they lined|
up to leave for the theater.
|Back at Disneyland for the evening. I love this one.|
|At California Adventure.|
|This was when I still had four hours to go.|
|Olaf's Snow Fest|
|I finally got to experience Radiator Springs Racers--it is|
excellent. Really cute, but also really thrilling.
|Enormous fajita salad is enormous.|
|Meeting Mickey. :)|
|These days, Star Tours is 3-D.|
|Disneyland has a Starbucks on Main Street.|
|Selfie with Minnie. She didn't have an attendant.|
|Started off in California Adventure.|
|I made a point to see the Red Trolley News Boys again.|
|I've never noticed the tiny vineyard before!|
|Another pic with Donald.|
|Going under the sea...|
|The Army Guys from Toy Story. The back of their truck has|
"Andy" in childish scrawl.
|Broccoli cheddar in a sourdough bread bowl from Boudin.|
|It rained again on Saturday, and my new hoodie came in handy.|
|Our creepy and hilarious porter.|
|Someone liked the rain (hint: not me). We stopped to have|
some hot chocolate.
|Hiding out in Sleeping Beauty's Castle with other rain refugees.|
|The old submarine ride is now all about Finding Nemo. The|
seagulls shout out "Mine! Mine! Mine!" from time to time.
|Back to Toon Town.|
|Turns out they close the Tea Cups in the rain.|
|If you look closely, you can see me.|
|Frozen Sing-Along in California Adventure.|
|Let it go...let it go....|
|Elsa out in front.|
|I treated myself to a Mickey Marshmallow Wand. :)|
|I do wish this had better lighting.|
|Outside of Pirates of the Caribbean.|
|Three singers getting ready for warm-ups.|
|I stood there and waited for the cars to enter the loop. This picture is|
|The stage for Aladdin.|
|Prince Ali, fabulous he...|
|The Genie was fabulous.|
|So proud of my camera for all these pics.|
|The magic carpet is draped over the balcony.|
I stopped taking pictures after Aladdin, as I had a mini-crisis to deal with, and it was getting dark.
